Short-term drug rehab and alcohol treatment services in ID. are ordinarily delivered in a residential or inpatient facility for a duration of 30 days or less. Though long term drug rehab requires at least a 90 day stay and a much more rigorous course of treatment, short-term drug rehab and alcohol treatment services work to get the addicted person abstinent through detoxification in conjunction with a short course of counseling and therapy to lightly deal with addiction issues. Because it usually takes several weeks if not months to truly address everything which might hang the person up and bring about relapse once they go back into the real world, short-term drug rehab and alcohol treatment services may not be recommended for those in ID. who have a long termaddiction to drugs and alcohol.
